i am a mom/wife/textile designer gone haywire. I love to sing(music/arts AA degree), craft, exercise, and be goofy. Just living life outside the norm. And the norm thanks me for it. Oh yeah, and I like me some haikus. . . . . . . . . . What are we up to currently? Aaron recently started medical school at Ross University on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, and the kids and I are along for the crazy ride :)

Guitar hero III!!
We got this game on Monday around lunchtime and by Tuesday morning I'd already finished this game on medium difficulty... it's a lot of fun. Aaron preordered this game a few months ago for his birthday present from me :o) I'm so thoughtful.... LOL

I can FLY!

(click on picture to view full size) I constructed these wings out of tights, 2 hangers, watered down glue, and glitter. It was a lot of fun and REALLY easy! I was going to make them look like the typical wings that you see on halloween which are actually butterfly or fairy wings and then I remembered that angel wings don't look like that. This was the best I could do with the size of the hangers and no advice. I like how they turned out. Had I thought of this earlier I'd have made a bunch of fairy wings and sold them to a high end boutique in Scottsdale before halloween... oh well. I was as they say, a day late and a dollar short..

Megan's no-cost Costume!

Saturday, October 27, 2007

I just had to post this really quick- This is a pic of Megan's Angel costume I've been working on all day- I didn't spend a DIME!!!!! I made the under white skirt out of an old polo shirt of Aaron's and I already had a white boa that I cut and wired for the halo, and Aaron's mom had a huge bolt of lace from when his grandma Shumway passed away. Cute cute! I will have to spend money on two pairs of white tights when I make the wings next week, but we're going to a community halloween trunk or treat tonight without the wings.

Utah Trip - ....the other half

Friday, October 5, 2007

Have you all been waiting for the second installment of the Utah trip? Welllllll, ok here's a little note on the rest of the trip....

Katie and Carter got married!

Thank you to our wonderful and over qualified babysitters, Sarah and the Gannaways... I think they should start a band... I like the sound of that... Sarah and the Gannaways.....

Afterward, we had a lovely luncheon at....a place in Provo... I think. Cute bib, Aaron.

...where among other crazy stories told, Rand proceeded to tell us all about his friend who, while on his honeymoon on some beach, got his nipple-ring snagged on the volleyball net as he jumped to spike the ball. Needless to say, we were the loudest and most rambunctious table there (as always).

Where is Aysha??? And Renee??? I think Renee was the photographer of one of these... we'll catch her later since I dont have any of her at the table... No, I'm not letting you off the hook Renee. Here's the only one of Aysha...I have no idea what Aaron said, but it must've been absurd, right Aysh?

Of course the Harward Family singers were featured singing uhhhh.. what did we sing? I'll Be Seeing You.

The reception was beautiful and a great time was had by all.

Especially Autumn and Megan who loved wearing matching flower girl dresses.

And both Matthew and Colin were too cute in their tuxes.

We called Colin the little executive because he had a serious face on most of the time... You're fired!

We told Colin to give Megan a kiss and instead he turned around and kissed the light post. It was pretty funny. There we go........... much better!

I had to include this last picture of our family. Unfortunatly, it was the best one of us....

Here's one that didn't make the cut... LOL! I love our family!
(Matthew reverse-head-butted me. Never a dull moment...)

Bye bye love birds! Have fun on your honeymoon!!!

No, Renee, I didn't forget you :o)
